Great Articles about the Audio Hobby
« on: 23 Jul 2012, 04:24 am »
Hi folks,

I have come across a few great articles about the audio hobby and how we listen to music, and thought that we should start a thread that collects these truly great and important articles for those who are new to the hobby. I am thinking not about technical articles of the sort that are appropriate for the Lab Circle. But instead, I am thinking more of thoughtful treatments about listening to music and the role that equipment plays in our enjoyment to the music. As well as laying out the various positions that different listeners and reviewers take toward audio. Maybe those articles that lay out the terrain of the audio world and those articles that we find particularly thought provoking. Anyways, this seemed like the most appropriate circle for this, even though these articles may be of great interest for ACers who may be far from beginners in this hobby and even though some of the content of these articles may be a bit above the heads of folks just starting out.
